Kandice and Kevin are married! They had a beautiful wedding day at The Crystal Ballroom in Clearwater, that was full of aaaaaalllll the sparkly details! Kandice carried a custom brooch bouquet, which popped beautifully against her vintage style dress, and her veil had scattered rhinestones throughout it giving it a fun polka dot effect (which you know Sarah was just obsessed with!) Kevin worked with a designer to create a custom suit, that included pops of the blues and purples that made up the color palette of the day. And when it was finally time for their first look, we loved that Kandice was seeing his outfit for the first time as well!

After some portraits with the bridal party at Philippe Park, the soon-to-be newlyweds headed to the venue, to say their vows in a room decked out with tall florals and purple uplighting. The entire setting had such a warm feel, and it only got warmer as everyone laughed when Kevin came down the aisle greeting everyone. His groomsman even pulled out the lint roller and comb when he got to the front of the aisle to make sure he looked EXTRA good. It was such a fun moment that set the tone for their sweet ceremony. Afterwards guests enjoyed cocktails before heading into a reception with a luxurious mix of high and low florals, and the party got started with some seriously epic bridal party entrances!

Kandice and Kevin, thank you so much including us in your best day ever! We loved spending time with you both again and are so excited for your big move to China!

Love + Laughs,

Sarah & Ben

    It surely looks like a dream wedding come true. The fairy tale type wedding where everything falls into place at the end. The wedding photography is done so artistically. The emotions are so well captured and beautifully presented. And, oh lord! The gown! It had me drooling. Loved it.
